This design incorporates elements of classic luxury and performance cars, combining them with modern features and amenities to create a car that can comfortably transport people in style. This car is designed with elements from the Cadillac Coupe Deville, Ford Crown Victoria, Chevrolet Corvette and Caprice, and the Plymouth Gran Fury. I envision it being a little more aerodynamic than I could draw. The most important thing about the picture though is that it shows a rough design for a luxury car. Obviously, with fuel prices, environmental regulations, and buyer tastes different from the heyday of many of the cars I took inspiration from, it would be necessary to probably have a shorter, more aerodynamic hood, and a more aerodynamic rear. Right now my design for the trunk is mostly a cross between the Cadillac Coupe Deville and Ford Crown Victoria, with some elements of the 1960s Corvette. One feature that is unique is the grille. It is intended to point outwards and be flanked by headlights, like the Coupe Deville, but on a hood shaped more like the Caprice or Crown Victoria. I'm thinking that headlights like the 1980s Kenworth T660 would fit best with the design of the car, because they combined traditional truck headlights, which just stuck out of the fender, with headlights from aerodynamic cars, placing the turn signal on the corner so as to only require one bulb. I'm thinking for the rear that I would like to have Cadillac ATS tail lights for a sedan, or Escalade tail lights for a station wagon. For radio or CB antennas, I think it would look best to center the antenna on the trunk, but with new radio antenna technologies, it will probably be possible to integrate the antenna into the car. The final design is based partly off of the VW Beetle and Porsche 911, which would allow more storage space and a sportier look. I'm also thinking of the possibility to do a rear end similar to that of the Ford Capri MKII or 1970s Chevrolet Nova. Semi-Finals: I thought more about the design of the car, but not only from the perspective of a car enthusiast, but also as an intended user. I decided that two big things that I wanted this car to have were an adjustable ground clearance, and lots of customization. Adjustable ground clearance would let you lower your car when traveling on smooth roads, improving gas mileage, and let you raise your car the the height of a small SUV or possibly pickup truck, thereby allowing you to drive through mud, sand, and snow, and offroads. Additionally I want the car to be powerful enough to tow a boat or camper, and when not towing be capable of accelerating like a BMW or Mercedes. Secondly, I want this car to be customizable. Not just in that you can choose the color and interior, but also modify the exterior. I want to be able to have a very simple, economical base model which you can add features that you desire to. For example, you could add a vinyl top, chrome bumpers, a spotlight, hood mounted mirrors, an exterior visor, spoiler, towing apparatus, etc. to make the car even more versatile and have a greater appeal. I also would want to make "business customizations" available. For example, physicians, bookbinders, computer technicians, or salesmen would be able to drive a car without rear seats, and would likely make a better impression upon their customers than if they were driving a small van or hatchback. I would also want to consider offering the option to remove rear windows, giving the car an uncluttered appearance, even if it is full of work materials. It could also be useful to have the option of dividing the rear area from the front seats, and maybe even offering separate climate control. If a station wagon was produced, instead of just a sedan, business customizations could be offered to convert the vehicle into a delivery van, hearse, or if offered with right side drive and additional mirrors, maybe even postal use, as the USPS is currently looking for a viable and practical way to replace custom built 30 year old trucks.
